Young Naturist Causes and Support Of Artists 4 Israel Golan Job

(This post was written and published by Jordan Blum)
For the longest time neither Felicity, Nudist Portal nor myself have replied to some of the innumerable negative opinions or absurd accusations made by some folks (mainly from within the Nudist and Naturist communities).
But something happened when we published the announcement of the upcoming occasion by Artists 4 Israel. The second we published the announcement we began receiving all kinds of comments. While most of the comments were encouraging, a growing amount of them were negative.
Artists 4 Israel Golan Project
Therefore I want to take this opportunity to address some of the dilemmas. For those of you who are unaware, I want to start by outlining some of the facts:
The Artists 4 Israel occasion was not created by FKK
The big event was made to raise cash in order to to dress up some of the bomb shelters in the Golan Heights
The Golan Heights borders Syria and with all the instability in that state there’s a danger that people in Israel, particularly in the Golan, might get shelled. This would mean that individuals (and children) might have to spend time (maybe days or weeks in the bomb shelters)
The event organizers contacted FKK to see if we’re able to help with finding naked friendly people that would be willing to get body painted naked (not professional models – we were asked if anyone in our community would be interested)
The Artists 4 Israel project objective: “Using artwork and beauty across the Golan to counteract the anxiety and uncertainty of strikes from Syria”
Artists 4 Israel is a real organization, and they were approached by the Golan Municipalities.
For the record, I grew up in the northers part of Israel and have had to spend time in bomb shelters. I know how dreary and dismal they could be.
Here are some of the comments we received:
The Golan Heights is not on the border with Syria, it’s Syrian territory illegally annexed by Israel.
This group is trying to use art and partying to distract from Israel’s oppressive practices.
A horrible idea that supports illegal resolution and Apartheid!
There were also much more upsetting opinions on Facebook. Some made comments that insinuated that Israel as a state (and the Jewish people that dwells there) do not need a right to exist. Some took it a bit farther and insinuated that by default – I (as in myself personally) do not have the right to exist.
For the record I would really like to officially say – Screw everyone who thinks that one innocent child’s suffering is less important than another!
So with that in your mind. I want to only say to those people who made the comments – “You Are Acting Like Quite The Asses” (and I mean it in the underside of my heart). To those who singled me out – “I am here and yes I ‘m Jewish – Deal with it!”
None of those of US who demanded that we not help out innocent civilians in the Golan offered to create an event to help the folks on the other side of the fence.
I would like them to note these facts:
We never said no to helping out a fundraiser for the people of Syria.
We didn’t turn down any organization which was legitimately attempting to do good nowadays.
We’ve got ever been supportive of organizations which can be willing to accept our worth. Specially those that go thus far as to integrate them into a central part of their event.
The interactions with the event organizers has been nothing but warm, respectful and positive.
We are not a big organization, but we do as much as we can and then some! And within an industry that’s less than forward believing or open minded and supportive. So with that in think it really is time for whatever you hate mongerers of late to put your money where your mouth is. Like my grandma would say – shit or get off the pot. Go out and create a see-through collaborative occasion that incorporates and celebrates the love and acceptance we have for people – the human beings themselves. Stop bitching and creating drama because you love ranting in public! nudism family and get to work! If you really care then concentrate on creating something positive rather than attempting to hinder our efforts and creating play.
Once you have it all together then let’s understand 🙂 Till then – please act with respect and notice that we’re doing what we can, with what we have to send a confident message.
